    You set the pulleys at the bottom and starting with arms wide and extended, bring them up to about sternum-height and hands nearly together to squeeze the pecs. Control the negative.

    It is easy to turn this into a standing cable curl if you use sloppy form and not feel this in the chest at all. I found that the best way is to keep a very slight bend in the arms and concentrate to not increase that bend at all on the way up. You should feel it mostly in the front delts as you begin to come forward and your chest take over as you pass the halfway mark. Contract hard at the top as you should be doing with every exercise.
    Use the tools of the trade to help you. I use devices such as chalk for grip strength, gloves, wrist straps, lifting belts - if it helps you lift more, it's all good. - Ronnie Coleman, Hardcore, 2007 Triumph Books

    Biggest question in bodybuilding: Whaddaya bench? As I've said before, it doesn't matter how much you bench; it matters how much you [i]look[/i] like you bench... There's no round on stage that's the benchpress round. - Bob Chicherillo, World Class Physique, CMG

    Yes, for lower chest. The picture you have used above demonstrates a cable fly to be certain, but the emphasis is in the center. That is like doing flat bench for lower chest development, rather than declines.

    What I was describing, although in the book I own it's Ronnie Coleman demonstrating it, heh:
